Re: [Lubuntu-desktop] [Doc/Support Request] Removal of Bluetooth

2011-12-27 Thread Phill Whiteside
Hi Bhaskar,

many thanks for that on disabling Bluetooth. It has been added to the
Workarounds area
https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Lubuntu/Documentation/FAQ/Workarounds

@ A J - it will need adding to your mega thread on the forum.

Regards,

Phill.

 Well, for disabling the kernel module, you can blacklist it to not
 load at boot time.

 lsmod | grep bluetooth - This will give you the bluetooth module and the
 other modules that require it. For me the output is:
 bluetooth 179900  23 rfcomm,bnep,btusb

 You will have to blacklist these modules in /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist
 So add the following lines to /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist file:

 blacklist rfcomm
 blacklist bnep
 blacklist btusb
 blacklist bluetooth

 And reboot. After the reboot you can check lsmod | grep bluetooth to
 see if it is loaded or not, if it returns empty then it's not loaded.

 As for the bluetooth related packages, I'm not sure maybe someone else
 can point out the relevant packages specific to Lubuntu as I have a
 lot of other packages installed as well, I believe removing bluez and
 bluetooth should do it.

 Hope this helps, cheers :)
